Ex-ambassador stunned Trump sided with Kim against South Korea

Ex-ambassador stunned Trump sided with Kim against South Korea

The president said he and Kim "got along from the beginning" and the North Korean leader realized that he must get rid of his nuclear weapons.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke by phone with Trump for 20 minutes late on Tuesday, but an official readout of the call made no mention of military exercises. Between 1996 and 2005, joint U.S.

Moon Seong Mook, a former South Korean military official, said Trump's comments on the drills confirmed what many in South Korea had feared all along - that North Korea would attempt to drive a wedge between Washington and Seoul and gain substantial concessions from an unconventional US president who thinks much less of the traditional alliance than his predecessors.

South Korean officials who met Kim this year said the North Korean leader said he understood the need for the training.

Trump has now essentially adopted the standard North Korean line, calling the military exercises a "provocative" drain of money and announcing they would stop while he continues talks with Kim, whom he repeatedly praised as a solid negotiating partner.

In a joint statement signed by the leaders, the countries committed to the recovery of the remains and the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

"The key question is whether this concession by Mr. Trump was coordinated at all with the (South Korean) Government", Countryman said.

"The core of the U.S".

"Well, I think without the rhetoric, we wouldn't have been here", Trump said of the summit.

He noted, however, that exercises could easily be restarted if needed.

The final deal over the North Korean problem is yet to be signed, and the US wants South Korea and China to be part of it.

During the first press conference after his historic meeting with the North Korean leader, Trump said U.S. war games in the region would be "provocative" amid talks with Pyongyang and promised to suspend them.
